Hand Of Pod 90: previewing the 2013 Torneo Final & wondering where Riquelme will go

In the ninetieth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, Dan and Joel preview the 2013 Torneo Final, which kicks off with Unión hosting Arsenal de Sarandí on Friday evening. We discuss Fernando Gago’s move to Vélez Sarsfield – easily the most spectacular signing of the summer – and what Vélez’s chances are of retaining their title, as well as talking about Racing’s transfer window departures, River Plate’s relative success and most of the other ins and outs, before moving on – we couldn’t very well avoid him – to the interminable saga of Juan Román Riquelme’s ever changing mood. Will he play for Boca? Will he play for Tigre? Should we really care any more? After that, we answer listeners’ questions on Argentine sides in the 2013 Copa Libertadores and more.

Don’t forget, you can subscribe to us here on iTunes, if you want. Or follow us on Twitter. And check Mystic Sam’s progress through the first weekend of the Final by checking the HOP blog post.
